Northumberland-based referee Scott Duncan will be the man in charge of Saturday's trip to Villa Park as he begins his sixth season on the National List of referees.
He first took charge of The Bees for a 2-0 defeat at Carlisle United in March 2013. Last season, he officiated our 2-0 win against Brighton and Hove Albion, as well as the draws at Derby County and Ipswich Town. In total, we have won two and drawn five of the ten games he has been in charge for.
So far this season, Duncan has shown 15 yellow cards and two reds in six competitive fixtures.
